Dear Inge, thank you for your comment. Shugnite powder is used mostly externally to treat different skin related problems. You need to make a shungite paste and apply it to the problem area. Then it is recommended to cover it with soft cloth and leave for 1-2 hours. After this small healing session just wash shungite paste off thoroughly with warm running water or using cotton wool pad and olive oil. Besides, you may use shungite powder for water purification and then drink shungite water on a daily basis to improve your health. If you have any other questions, feel free to write to us.

Dear Wynnett, thank you for your comment. There are no special requirements in terms of shungite powder storage. So you may keep it the way you like. If you keep it in a glass container and put it in the sun the powder will consume solar energy and there will be no need in extra charging. If you have any other questions, feel free to write to us. We will be happy to discuss. Best regards, Karelian Heritage

Dear Melanie, thank you for your questions. To paint walls we'd recommend to add shungite powder directly to the paint. It can be painted over once applied and dryed. Although it is difficult for us to say how much powder you should add to the paint since it depends on the paint, its color and texture, we'd recommend you to start with at least 100 grams of shungite powder per gal of paint. Then you will be able to add more shungite if it isn't enough. If you have any other questions, feel free to write to us. We will be happy to help. Best regards, Karelian Heritage.

Can you please list out what quantities are needed and what items are needed to make my own shungite paint. I have 5 rooms to cover and want 5 buckets . Just explain how to do 1 buket of paint. How much powder to add and ect.

Karelian Heritage:
27/12/2019, 10:07:56 AM

Dear Obed, thank you for your comment. The first step in creating shungite paint is making a shungite paste. In order to do it, you should mix shungite powder with water in a proportion 1:2. The paste that you will get in result can already be used as a wall coating, yet it can lack stickiness and hardness, but you can always experiment with that. Just put couple of layers of shungite paste on your wall and leave it to dry. If you wish to get proper shungite paint, you should mix shungite paste with paint. You can take standard wall paint that you can find in any hardware store. Take white paint or a transparent one to outline the black color of shungite and mix it with shungite paste. Keep adding shungite paste to get a shade of black that will fit your interior. Once you get the color you need, you can use it as you would use a regular wall paint. We hope it was helpful. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions. Best regards, Karelian Heritage

Dear Gina, thank you for your comment! There are no contraindications for using shungite paste for your body, although we recommend checking beforehand if you have an allergy. Apply a bit of shungite paste on your wrist, leave it for 30-60 minutes, and if there is no reaction, you can use shungite paste for your body. Best regards, Karelian Heitage
